Brian, where is that advice coming from? If nothing else, it's certainly counter-intuitive. It's been years since I've grown Eremurus from home grown seed, but I'm pretty sure I let the seed dry for the summer and then planted in the fall - and got great germination the following late winter/spring. 
In nature, the germination of newly ripened seed at this time of year would be a big disadvantage, wouldn't it? Wouldn't the seed be germinating at the beginning of a drought? 
Please tell us more.
